Food drive helps children

June 2, 2012
The Daily Mining Gazette

To the editor:

The Hancock St. Vincent de Paul conference would like to thank the Curves organization for their donation of hundreds of pounds of food for the shelves of our food pantry. Also, we would say another big thank you to all the U.S. mail handlers in the area who donated food from their food drive.

Any food donation can be dropped off at the St. Vincent de Paul store in Hancock.

Store hours are Monday to Friday, 10 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. and reduced Saturday hours.

Again, thank you to the Curves organization, U.S. mail handlers, the Holy Family Church Youth Group of South Range and the Little Huskies Organization of Houghton.

We are very grateful for your donation of food, your time and your energy.
